Raag Jaijawantee - Raam simar raam simar

The following shabad is in Raag Jaijawantee
Raag Jaijawantee: -
An expression of feelings of satisfaction of achieving a goal, and great happiness, but at the same time it can also convey the sense of sadness of losing. An anecdote which can be used to explain this is like that of a King winning a battle, however he is then told her has lost his son on the battlefield. This particular Raag set across the feeling of putting your duty first, no mater what you inner feelings maybe like that of a saint soldier riding into battle to protect the downtrodden even if the oppressor who he shall fight was once a friend. The balance of joy and sorrow put across will keep a balance and help put in prospective ones own life achievements.
